2011 Elantra Headlights won't turn on right away

I have HID's in...first it was...it took a couple "turns" of turning my headlights on for my lights to actually turn on, then it eventually took minutes, to 15mins to 20mins to last night, 90mins of trying to turn my headlights on before they actually connected and turned on, they'll stay on while driving, but once I turn my car off, I have to repeat the process all over again. They eventually turn on, but won't turn on RIGHT away. Checked the fuse box...doesn't look like anything is blown. Tried to replace the HID's to regular bulbs with original wiring and still nothing. Any ideas??

Sounds like you have either a bad lightswitch, (multifunction switch on stalk), or a relay acting up. My guess is that your switch is going out.
